    I'm quite happy with my results except drama: A*, 8 A's and a C in drama. I was told my coursework was a high B and my performance was going to be at least A. Did anyone else get disappointing results with drama? Also I didn't get a mark out of 200 for maths it just says I got 52 points (which is apparently A) I really want to know what mark I got in maths :/ any way I can find out? Well done everyone by the way!

    If you got the B's in the AS levels you're taking, you're completely fine

    Nope. One C in Chemistry which I'm taking. That's the problem.

    Have you contacted your sixth form to see if they'll still accept you as you've narrowly missed out? If not, look into a remark for subjects you got a C in, was there a near miss that you could get it up to a B?

    Failing both of those, try looking at other sixth form colleges to see if they'll take you on.
    Well, we have to go in for enrolment soon even if we just narrowly missed out.

    Do you by any chance know Harrow College? It's the nearest to me but I'm not sure how to actually apply or anything.

    No idea I'm afraid. Do they have a website with that information on it? Otherwise, give them a call.

    Your teacher is unable to guarantee you with UMS before results have been posted on results day, the 92 UMS would of been an estimate. Grade boundaries and UMS are staggered so if a lot of people may done really well in the exam the grade boundaries will be extremely high. However, if you got 60 out of 64 it is very unlikely that you would achieve 83 UMS. Get in touch with your exams administrator at your school.
    Ok, I have enrolment day tomorrow, I'll ask and see. Thanks

    Chemistry: A*
    Religious Education: A*
    Biology: A
    Maths: A
    Physics: A
    DT Graphics: B
    English Language: B
    Citizenship: B
    English Literature: C
    History: C
    French: C

    In Unit 3 Sciences, the May 2013 exams, somehow I managed 100% UMS (A*'s) on all three, a real shock. As it turns out, the countless hours of revision every night paid off! The ISA result for Biology was a bit disappointing (a D), probably holding my grade back a bit, but oh well. I'm really happy with Graphics, always liked the subject but hated the exams more than any others, just glad my coursework grade balanced out my exam result.

    The only ones I'm really disappointed about are History and English Literature, because I'm taking History at college and it made me question my suitability to the subject. I'm sure I've nothing to worry about, because I enjoy History a lot and I still meet the entry requirements.

    A-Level choices: Maths, Chemistry, Biology and either History/Computing. Looking to go into a career in medical science perhaps, but in recent months I've taken up an interest in computing so maybe that's an option for university and a later career.

    At my college anyway, you couldn't take anything (like science and maths, obviously things such as geography, you didn't even need the GCSE) unless you got a B. Especially with Chemistry, I know people that have gone from an A at GCSE to a C/D/E. Unless you need it, I would suggest trying something else, it's very hard. Or you could retake it whilst doing the AS, which basically means you're definitely going to at least get an A.

    What happens is if there is a trend that the controlled assessments are marked too generously/harshly then everyone in the class gets moved down/up by x amount. If there is no trend then the school are asked to send back more papers for checking.
    Oh, so there's no point in asking them to check to see if it is correct or not then, is it? Oh gosh, I hate my life

    Congratulations on your amazing results!! Ofsted shmofsted, their judgements of a school are often so disproportionate to how happy the students are as well :/ Grrr... My school (state comp) has been declared satisfactory the last two visits but we had brilliant results and it's such a lovely atmosphere too. I think 'measuring' schools in the way that they do is wrong and definitely not constructive. I heard that an alternative school assessment group made up of head teachers trying to HELP others schools not destroy them are emerging and they've called themselves 'Insted'. Genius!
    My school is "Outstanding". :lol: it's not.
